You can study short courses, apprenticeships, one-year access to university learning, HNCs and HNDs, as well as a range of post-16 subjects, from hair and beauty to construction and computing.
Expect a world-class education. As WorldSkills UK Centre of Excellence, we use expertise from top UK vocational coaches, curriculum designers and the awarding body, the NCFE, in addition to our talented experts in industry.

We are proud to be a community college. Our students regularly lend their voices to Stockport Council and youth organisations, with many opportunities to become fully involved in college life through membership of our Equalities Council or Green Assembly, by becoming a college ambassador or by going for a role on the governing body.
And we are here to look after you, with a team of highly-skilled learner services professionals available to support you with your wellbeing, finances and career goals.
At Stockport College, we also work very closely with employers to offer apprenticeship training, advice and guidance, as well as bespoke courses, tailored to your needs. Be sure to also check out how you can benefit from a share of £2 billion with us, by offering work placements to 16-24 year olds as part of the Government’s Kickstart Scheme.
